From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Breathless Trilogy comes the first novel in the Enforcers series—a bold new direction in erotic romance that explores the games men and women play, and the price they’re willing to pay for pleasure.

What he wants, he takes with no remorse or guilt.

She stood out in his club like a gem, unspoiled and untouched. A lamb among wolves, she clearly didn’t belong. Drawn to her innocence he watched as she was surrounded by men who saw what he did—but no one but him could touch her. He summoned her to his private quarters. He sensed her fear. He also recognized the desire in her eyes. And he knew she wouldn’t leave before he possessed her. She had no need to know his secrets. Not until he had her under his complete and utter control.

What he wants, she isn’t sure she can give him.

The moment he told her want he wanted, she couldn’t resist. Instinct told her to run, but her heart said stay and walk the fine line between pleasure and pain. Though she wasn’t sure she could ever completely surrender, the primal part of her wanted to try, even knowing this man could break her in ways she never imagined. Because once he possessed her, he owned her and it would be too late to turn back. She can only pray that he doesn’t destroy her in the end.


The perfect package. That’s what I predict the Enforcers Series by Maya Banks to be. The Mastered, the first in the series was the perfect intro into what I’ve no doubt promises to be an amazing saga. Drama, intrigue, power, Dominance, innocence, love, and submission. All of these elements and more are dangled before us like the proverbial carrot and I can not wait to see how the story plays out.

Drake Donovan is that alpha male that left me with that sought after heady feeling. He left my head spinning. Evangeline Hawthorn was that heroine I wanted to know in real life. She posses the perfect blend of virtue and sass. The two of them together, the perfect melange of all the attributes that tell a breathtaking love story, with a side of forbidden. I found myself lost in this narrative. The words catapulting me into their world. I loved, loved, loved the “brothers” in this story and can only hope that they each receive their own voice in the series. The ending left me shaking my head and counting the days until I learn the fate of all the characters I’ve fallen for and bonded with.
